When’s the last time you asked yourself, “Do I really have what it takes to do this?” If you’re anything like me, it was probably in the last 48 hours. Ministering to girls can be so fun and rewarding, but it’s hard work. It takes a toll on us as leaders, and the enemy loves to capitalize on our fears and weaknesses to make us feel unqualified. Sometimes the best thing to do is surround yourself with other leaders so you realize you’re not alone!
If you need a shot in the arm or want to connect with other women just like you, there’s a great opportunity coming up in Nashville in November at the Women’s Forum. It’s a leadership event for women who lead in any capacity. You’ll sit under the teaching of top ministry leaders and authors, and have opportunities to network with women who are serving in areas just like you. Whether you’re a full-time Girls Minister, teach a bible study, or are just starting to lead, there’s something for you! Amy-Jo Girardier will lead breakouts targeted specifically for Girls Ministry leaders, and you’ll walk away equipped with more tools to serve wherever you are.
As a former Girls Minister, I wish I would have known about the Women’s Forum sooner in my ministry journey. We hope to see you in Nashville for the Women’s Forum November 12-14!
